scott speicher. welcome back, you know the last time tiger woods teed it up, he missed the cut at the open. only second in time in his career he missed the cut at the major. second time, guy gives a whole new meaning to going green. that is not tiger, but this is. began the day with a 1-shot lead on number four, sinks the down hill put for the first birdie of the day. attempting to go out with style on 18 -- but it didn't matter. tiger shoots 3-under-69 to finish 20-under-par, winning the buick open for the victory.
11:23 pm
36 and one, leading out right after three ones, not human. and tacoma part native, funk, ran away with the senior open. a pro shot, from 171 beyond a beyond 171 beyond 171-yards, lands on the green, funk acknowledges the crowd, and knows it is in the bag. he would make the birdie to shoot a 7-under-65. a tournament record, fred funk wins the senior u.s. open and wins t geico minutes of fame. and when we come back, a little more skins talk, who is in charge of keeping jason campbell upright? when we continue. show people really trust us.

11:27 pm
where he is emotionally, hard to tell. he is kind of a quiet guy. where he will be physically, well that is up to an offensive line with a lot of question marks. more on the story. >> reporter: this year all eyes will focus primarily on one guy, jason campbell, but look closer. his success could ultimately depend on that of five guys , his effective line. samuels anchors the tough spot, doing for 10 straight seasons. but the big question, who will protect 17 on his right side? who will it be, the 400-plus pounder and top, pick in mike williams, or jeremy bridges? more on the opinion. >> i think it is tough -- you know we have depth from guys that have started in the league before, and this is probably
11:28 pm
the best depth that we have had since i've been here. >> i am getting better, day by day, working on techniques, stay low, work on things i need to work on. but so far it is going good. >> reporter: and beginning the season as the man who starts every offensive play with a snap, the man directly to his right, thomas, will guard that spot for the 7th straight year. and the new left guard is an old left guard. derek dockery returns after spending time elsewhere the past two seasons. >> really a good group, from tackle to tackle, and backups. we have guys that can really compete and that is what it is about. >> reporter: and the reason for the offensive line question, depth, they hope to have that in spades this season. >> and this whole line can be as good as they want to be seriously. we have the talent and the experience. you know we just need to come each day, work hard, focus on
11:29 pm
the little things, and just stay healthy of course. >> i think there is no limit on what we can do. we just have to decide, hey, we're going to be a great offensive line, just technique, staying with it. >> don't call these guys the hogs anymore. look at the weight loss, mike williams lost 108 pounds, from 450 to 342. and chris samuels dropped 28, 20 from 330 to 305. dockerry lost some as well, nine pounds lighter. precamp weight, i am sure the guys are lighter now. and beaten by indiana, mystic and the race at dan pocono, rain delay on ra
